This show has been commercially released as "Dick's Picks, Vol. 28"

Yes, so I am trying to be helpful. This one is worth doling out the bucks. Hard to believe there are middling reviews. This show is so good. Promised Land, Loser, Looks Like Rain, Loose Lucy (best) and Playing! are fabulous first set numbers. The Dark Star is glorious and Greatest rocks. Bobby sounds great at this show and Jerry is playing wonderfully. Phil is in the picture.
Salt Lake is a great show too with probably the best Dew ever.
The sound quality is as good as any other release. I am not joking.
Other than 5/2/70 (cryptical) this is the best release practically. Check amazon everyday for used. ($32.99 last I checked)
firstname.lastname@example.org if you're desperate.

Subject: Another point
Some of the reviews here are from prior to the Dick's Picks release, when this show probably was available for streaming, and, quite possibly download.
The reviews would certainly still be a resource for anyone considering purchasing the official release.
That's kind of the purpose of an archive.
It would be counterproductive to delete all reference to a show just because it can't be accessed here, wouldn't it?

Subject: Stop bitching about the band's super laxed streaming policies
JJF47... I don't see the point of your complaint. Yes, you can't stream the show from this source here. Yes, there are current reviews on this page for a show that you cannot stream directly from the archive, so go access your Dick's Picks copy, listen there, and quite whining.
Or for that matter, stream or download the tens of thousands of hours of other quality GD shows that haven't been released. Stop pretending you don't have access to this show. If you're part of the trading community, you can find it. I think you're arguing a majority tired point with this whole "why post it if its not streamable" tangent.
People are reviewing here based on the Dick's Picks transfer, true. But really you are hearing the same show, same quality, and I feel like you can post an informed review on this page reflecting the DP transfer.
This is one of the best shows of Winter 73' and a longtime favorite of mine.
Winers quit wining. Enjoy whats here and fill in the rest by being resourceful.
this is in response to jpmf. thanks. i noticed that though. it seems you're telling me the reviews below are from people who have dick's picks and not from the archive listing here. So why is the site here then? it still doesn't make sense to me if the reviews relate to the release of dick's picks and nothing else. the listing here is worthless in other words. to me there has to be a way to access the listing, if not it should be removed, and i'm still no giving it a rating.
i've asked this many times before and as far as i can tell no one can give me an answer....
how do you listen to a show like this that has no available streaming or listening device available to access?
there seem to be a number of available reviews, even one earlier from today, but how was the show accessed?
any insight will be appreciated.
again, i can't rate something i can't access, so i'm going to give this show no rating. i'll check back throughout the day to see if anyone has responded....
Subject: as noted at the top of the page ...

So, to listen to it, among other options, you can buy it.
Subject: DP28 -
This night, the first half of DP28, is absolute dynamite. Even though the release is missing quite a few tracks from the overall show, coupled with the following show @ the Salt it makes for one of the better DP releases out there.
Highlights are too numerous to count - they're way out there for this show! Check out in particular how long they air out that B-flat Eyes jam - wowsers!
HOWEVER, deadheads being deadheads, I would love to hear the leftovers! This full board *is* still out there on the interwebz, but how's about a kind archivist throwing the extras up on this site? You just *know* it would be good karma, right? :) :) :)
Subject: Best Big Railroad Blues Ever!
Jerry is extremely inspired and this version stands apart from all others.
The rest of this ain't too shabby either.
Subject: can anyone help out a fellow head?
if there is anyone out there who downloaded this show before it was removed and is willing to trade i will trade a few shows for just this one. having dicks picks 28 did the job for a while but ide really like to hear the missing songs from this complete version of the show. if anyone can help ide greatly appreciate it, thanks
Subject: Dick's Picks 28 leftovers -- where the heck are they??!!
Subject: And what a long strange trip its been...................
This was my first show and of all my shows, I still feel it was the best. The Wall of Sound actually frightened me as I hallucinated the first chord would blow us all out of the place!!! The China/Rider was one I have never forgotten and the set from Tennessee Jed through Eyes of the World took me to places I can only describe as otherworldly. The one interesting part I remember (somebody correct me if I'm confused) was the NFA > GDTRFB > NFA. The Pershing management/Lincoln Police were trying to get the boys to quit as they had gone overtime (imagine that) They turned the house lights on at the end of the first NFA and then shut the power off to the stage at the end of GDTRFB. I recall Bobby and Jerry picking up acoustics and continuing back into NFA until the Lincoln Police actually escorted them from the stage. As with most shows, the recordings can never do justice to what was a spectacular show. The next twenty two years helped me appreciate what a fabulous show this was!!
Subject: Doesn't hold up as a complete show
The Dark Star>Eyes>1/2 Step is great, and even the NFA combo is good, but as a whole, I don't think the show holds up as well as a lot of other February 73 shows.
Still with a listen or two.
